7.3 idi newbie here questions on performance

Hello all just bought a 88 F250 4x4 7.3idi 5spd 3.55 gears, new 12"clutch, has a homebrewed propane injection system. I'm new to the idi,what i was wondering has anyone made a cold ar intake for one? installed a FASS type set up or just a high pressure elec pump? How to turn fuel up and how much to turn the fuel up? which side to install the egt probe? can't afford a turbo set up for a while, just looking to get the most power the cheapest easiest way. Truck will be used basically as daily driver, would like to haul my 26ft travel trailer with it and occasional tractor or equipment. sorry for all the questions. will load up some pics tomorrow, thanks in advance

Nobody makes an intake for these rigs. You have to fab it yourself if you want something.

2003 F350 6.0 4x4 Crewcab Longbed SRW w/X Code Front Springs- 265/75R16's on it now. Still got the 285 retreads in the shed though.
Future modifications: Edge Insight CS, SCT X3 with Custom Tunes
